(Des Moines, IA) -- A lot of Iowans voted in Tuesday's primary elections. The Iowa Secretary of State's Office says more than 356-thousand Iowans participated, the second largest number since 1994.
More than 73,000 Iowans voted absentee, which is the second highest total for a primary election in state history.
The unofficial turnout by political party was 195,355 Republicans and 156,589 Democrats.
This morning, Secretary Pate’s office selected a random precinct in all 99 counties for conducting a post-election audit. County officials will hand count every ballot in that precinct to ensure the totals match the number compiled by the vote tabulators.
